  1. Here is a link showing the part numbers and diagram for your vehicle: http://www.autoatlanta.com/model/GT32-07-08/911-00.htm It looks similar to the listing for the standard 997 (carrera 4/4S) which is slightly different than the non 4/4S. the vertical mount is shown as item #3 but it does show the horizontal mount as well. on my 06 997 S, I have a drawer location in front of the battery where this unit is supposed to go. Do you mind me asking how much you paid and if you plan on selling the horizontal unit for a vertical one, I would be interested. I've seen them on Ebay naturally (right now, most are vertical mounts). Somewhere I've also read that the horizontal DVD when placed in the vertical position has issues and seems to be unstable for GPS. Did you have to replace the PCM unit (or did it just come paired with the DVD unit)?
  2. Are the locations for the junctions of the Optical cable, etc obvious or are they hidden? Also, is a PCM update required, that is, is there a navigation PCM and non-navigation PCM? Do you have to do anything inside the console as far as cable connections? How did you acquire the correct part numbers and if you get parts that were manufactured after the purchase date of the car, will that require additional work? What about the horizontal vs. vertical DVD Drives; I understand if you use a horizontal drive in a vertical position, it causes some GPS issues, but what about a vertical drive for the horizontal position assuming that I can't acquire a horizontal drive for a good price?
  3. Car was built November 2005, so I guess they looked up the wrong number. Do I have to replace the existing PCM in the car? How do I get copies of the two TSBs? thanks
  4. Looking to retrofit Navigation into my 06 Carrera S with PCM/Telephone module. What parts are needed, I've come up with the following: Navigation DVD player (possible part number 997.642.137.02) Optical cable (possible part number of 997.622.713.00) Antenna GPS (997.642.105.00?) DVD maps and updates anything else? Will I need to upgrade the PCM with part number 997.044.901.34, seems like the PCM is the largest cost in this part number, will the original work? thank you in advance
